Created in Las Cayes in 2016, Oasis Haiti is a non-profit organization whose goal is to enable Haitian communities to develop both economically and socially and ecologically. It acts through different action points :
- His orphanage, the true heart of the organization, expresses their desire to give children the tools they need in their future lives.
- His school, where classes are offered for the children of the local community, to ensure the quality of their education.
- Its microcredit, which allow Haitians to borrow to launch their projects.
- Assistance to people recovering from natural disasters, through reconstruction programs.
Oasis Haiti has a land exploitable in agriculture with an area of 9675 square meters. It currently exploits less than a third of this space by agriculture. The goal of Oasis is to transform this parcel of land into a biological farm and to exploit the totality of the space at their disposal.
Oasis’s vision is for its farm to be a positive actor in the community and to support individual and community development through its activities. Future projects include a workshop to transform agricultural production, a training center for agronomy students, among others …
